A mixture of previously unreleased tracks meant for compilations (that, for reasons left unwritten, never materialized), remixed detrius from 2002-2004, and new material created in 2010. This is an album best enjoyed through headphones.
"Antithesis" is eleven tracks of highly experimental avant-garde power-electronics and noise. Nevertheless, although there is an emphasis on crazed improvisational distortion, analog mutations, and industrial atmospherics which furtively border into dark ambient territory, there are many emotive elements of the album which transcend the usual 'faceless' noise performances or blatantly offensive 'scare tactic freak shows' of PE acts which focus more upon the ideological message presented rather than the actual noise or electronics themselves.
This is the main focus of Nihil Obstat: auditory experimentation, creating an easily identifiable aesthetic while at the same time evolving into unexpected directions.
